Coarsegold Historical Museum, Music in the Meadow 2012

Coarsegold Historical Museum's, big fund raiser. " Music in the Meadow", was more than music, we also had artists,  a magician, crafts and lots of fun.
It looked like it would be a very hot day, but as it turned out, a breeze kept us cooled off and no rain
like last year.

We had watercolor artists in the School House, and the Opportunity Quilt, " Mountain Gems" was getting it's final touches. Made by the Sierra Mountain Quilters for the quilt show May 5th, 20 13.

The quilt is 100" X 88" and is all hand pieced, and appliqued.
It is fantastic in the photograph, but amazing in person.. remember to buy your tickets.
Yes, Of course, I have tickets to sell!

Valley Oak Band entertained us with toe tapping music, Dr. Phinease T. Barnabus celebrated the day with his magical talent. We had a delicious dinner, and people enjoyed walking the grounds viewing the crafts. Spinning, basket weaving, and tolle painting. I brought a display of  gourds, tools and talked about, how to carve, or paint on them.

Guests strolled around viewing the museum and new Black Smith Shop. Docents spoke about the history of the Old Adobe and the Barn..

Put the date on next years calendar, first week-end in June.
